Your business runs on applications, and when their performance suffers, so do you. Can you afford to let poor user experience affect your success?
At SolarWinds, our mission is to make IT look easy.
Organizations like yours depend on applications—whether deployed on-premises, in the cloud, or via software-as-a-service (SaaS) models—to support everything from productivity, to communications, to your business transactions.
When you can’t quickly detect, identify, and resolve app slowdowns or outages, your organization can lose user confidence and trust, see diminished productivity, and even lose revenue. Think about it: when you last experienced an app issue, did you alert the company? Or did you just give up… and move on to their competitor?
But apps are only part of the story. Application performance monitoring (APM) that provides visibility into their supporting infrastructure is just as critical. Seeing all the relevant information in one place helps you deliver an excellent user experience and resolve problems before users even knew they happened—and trace transactions to keep issues from happening again.
How we make application performance monitoring look easy:
You know application performance can affect your business, but how do you begin monitoring it? Larry Smith, Jr., has spent 25 years developing a broad perspective on the full infrastructure stack, and can help you get started with application performance monitoring.
Metrics and logs are two key elements of observability—setting up your APM approach to capture these key data points will help you see what happened, and when. That way, you’ll know what “normal” looks like, and be ready for when normal goes awry.
You know you have an issue, but you’re not sure what’s causing it. Is it the application, the network, the database, or the storage? By correlating and comparing disparate app performance monitoring metrics in a single view and a single timeline, you can locate the problem, wherever it lies, and resolve it quickly.
It’s undoubtedly a hybrid world. More than 90% of IT pros like you have at least some applications and data in the cloud, and only by including them in your IT monitoring insights can you gain end-to-end clarity and control across your entire IT Operations Management strategy. Join Microsoft Ops Advocate Phoummala Schmitt, and SolarWinds Head Geeks™ Thomas LaRock and Patrick Hubbard as they discuss how to ensure application performance, wherever those apps may live using SolarWinds application performance solutions.
"The most valuable feature of Server & Application Monitor is its ability to get it up and running out of the box in minutes."
